I think this is a matter of semantics and purpose.
They are not apparently automatic regulators.
If, however Tesla, as he seems to have done, used
them to adjust the _voltage_ to the primary, to maintain
voltage constant against variations in load, then to
refer to it as a regulating coil seems quite apropos.
It is reasonably analogous to inductive regulators used
then and now in power systems.
